Description

Top Bodybuilder Brian will demonstrate that shadow boxing outside Paddy Power can be a lifestyle choice. From the mind of weird comedian Jayne Edwards (as seen on BBC Three), comes a multidisciplinary and extremely silly comedy show about loss (wife), gain (weight) and whey protein. A lo-fi spectacle with a cult following, Brian is finally ready to open the door of his caravan and let the world in. 'A multi-layered spectacle of comedic talent' (JAMmag.com). 'A unique comic' (Skinny).

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 46 days ago

Top Bodybuilder Brian is a fun, homemade semi-character comedy. Jayne Edwards is in character as Brian, a whey-protein addicted, middle-aged, divorced pumper of iron from Rhyl, but she’s not gone the whole hog, instead sticking with her own speaking voice and eschewing realistic costume for marker-drawn tats and abs and...
